Lift One to Life in the Music City! Braxton Expands to Nashville


COVINGTON, KY [08/23] – Braxton Brewing Company is expanding distribution to Nashville, Tennessee. This is the third state that the Covington, Kentucky-based brewery will launch distribution into following Kentucky and Ohio. Core styles, seasonals, limited releases and Braxton Labs beers will be available beginning Monday, August 28th.

“We couldn’t be more excited about launching Nashville next week! As we looked to expand our distribution footprint last year, we really focused on a plan to move south,” said Jake Rouse, Co-Founder and CEO of Braxton Brewing. “Nashville is in the midst of the cultural renaissance where food, beer, and music collide. It’s truly something special and means a lot to our entire team that Braxton can be apart of it!”

“It is really exciting to launch our diverse lineup in the music city.” said Evan Rouse, Co-Founder and COO of Braxton Brewing, “It has been almost a full year since last launching a new market, and it there is a lot of opportunity for Braxton in Nashville. Keep your eye on store shelves and tap towers as we open distribution starting next week.”

Braxton Brewing Company has partnered with DET Distributing Company to take their can and draft distribution to Nashville.

Braxton Brewing Company was born out of a garage on Braxton Drive in Union, Kentucky. It’s there where Evan, at age 16, learned to homebrew. From there, a passion was born and a spark ignited. After years of refining his craft and creativity, he was joined by his brother (Jake), father (Greg) and mentor (Richard Dubé) in launching Braxton Brewing Company. After a record-setting Kickstarter campaign and being named as one of the Top 33 new breweries in 2015 by BeerAdvocate, the Covington-based brewery has continued to expand outside of Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati. Beginning with only 100 Barrels of fermentation capacity in 2015, the brewery is now home to 1,140 Barrels of capacity and is on pace to produce more 15,000 barrels in 2017.

Now, the team is thrilled to #LiftOneToLife in the Music City!
